Emily Logan, Ombudsman for Children, supports the 16 Days

Posted on December 10, 2013

Emily Logan

We're delighted to have the support of Emily Logan, Ombudsman for Children, for the 16 Days of Action.

"As Ombudsman for Children in Ireland I am constantly reminded of the necessity for organisations such as Women's Aid whose tireless efforts offer support and protection to not just women in difficult situations but also to their children. Children rely on adults to vindicate their rights and welfare and for most children it is their parents who are their principal advocates. I wish Women's Aid well in their campaign to highlight the issue of domestic violence and the affect it has on both women and children."

"Pavee Point's Violence Against Women Programme welcomes the opportunity to send this message of solidarity to Women's Aid for their yearly national campaign during the 16 Days of Action Opposing Violence Against Women.

Traveller, Roma and other minority ethnic women experience inequality, both on the basis of gender and ethnicity. Violence against women is not inherent in minority ethnic cultures. Women from every cultural and social background can and do experience violence.

Pavee Point VAW Programme greatly supports the work of Women's Aid in combating domestic violence and may their good work continue."

Pavee Point is an Irish NGO supporting Human Rights for Irish Travellers - an indigenous minority ethnic group in Ireland. It's a partnership of Travellers and settled people.
